Hi, I’m the seller. I bought it from the picker who bought it from the family at the estate sale. It came out of the Pacific Northwest, I believe Oregon.

 

I bought for my personal collection but space has become more of a commodity than anything and I really need to focus more on my niches.

 

Any questions or concerns or more pictures needed, let me know!

I can also do better on the price, especially off eBay. It’s a really nice little group!

Thank's for reposting the photos, quite a grouping.

 

One curious thing. We see he has a 2nd Award of the Combat Infantryman Badge, but only one is listed, and no combat assignments for either Korea or Vietnam is mentioned, Korea, Joint Operations Center attached to Air Force, whatever that is, and for Vietnam, the very unspecific Inspector General, two assignments to a most Non TO&E Infantry Unit.
